Gov’t Mule to release Pink Floyd covers album Dark Side of the Mule

on November 16, 2014, 2:39pm

Back in 2008, Gov’t Mule played an epic three-hour gig at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Halloween night. The second set that evening saw the jam band performing a setlist comprised entirely of Pink Floyd covers. Now, as the first entry in a newly launched archival campaign, Gov’t Mule is releasing that memorable concert as a live covers album dubbed Dark Side of the Mule.

The archival series seeks to use various performances from the band’s extensive vault to showcase their evolution over the years. “These new archival live releases just further [the concept of 2013’s Shout!, which sounds like Gov’t Mule but doesn’t sound like anything we had ever done],” guitarist Warren Haynes told Classic Rock, “and allow us to highlight some of our influences as well as how far we’ve come since the first album.”

Dark Side of the Mule will be available December 8th as a single CD and deluxe three-CD/DVD combo. A double-vinyl edition will also be released on January 13th. Watch a trailer for the release below, followed by tracklistings for each version.
